Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump believes that an injured Tom Brady is still better than any other quarterback in the NFL, he told supporters at a rally in Lowell, Mass.
Brady sustained a high ankle sprain in the regular season finale against the Miami Dolphins.
“Remember this,” Trump said, “Tom Brady injured is still better than anybody else.”
Trump also proceeded to applaud a fan clad in a custom-made Trump/Brady t-shirt.
“Tom has been very nice to me and Tom’s my friend,” Trump added. “He’s been saying great things about me, you know that. I’ll tell you what: He’s a champ and he’s a winner. And that’s what we need in this country.”

Brady and Trump have been friends since judging the Miss USA beauty pageant together in 2002. In a recent radio interview, Brady did not directly disclose whether Trump would have his vote, but he said hopes Trump has a chance at being the next president.
“That would be great. There’d be a putting green on the White House lawn. I know that,” Brady said.
